How to write and sell short stories with Della Galton - Saturday 9 March in Bournemouth
This course will focus on what a short story is and how you can sell it. We will look at existing short story markets (including magazines) and up to date information on what those markets require. We will also be looking at other paying short story markets (including podcasts) and what they require. Advice will be given on house style and how to find ideas to suit your intended market. Courses are run on an informal lecture/discussion group basis.
Time and Cost
